Title of Event: Department of The Air Force Bird /Drone Detection Radar Virtual Industry Day
Audience: Members of the Air Force and Industry Representatives
When: 9 January 2023, 0900-1230 MST (times are tentative depending on industry response)
Where: WebEx

Abstract: The Air Force (USAF) experiences thousands of bird strikes each year during flight
operations in low-altitude environments. As a result, the USAF incurs millions of dollars in
aircraft damage due to wildlife strike events. Further, bird strikes threaten combat capability of
USAF aircraft and the safety of aircrews.

The objective of this effort is to provide the USAF with a streamlined acquisition solution for
Bird Detection Radar (BDR) or Bird/Drone Detection Radar (B/DDR) units and support
services. The purchase of radar units and services under this effort may occur as initial
investments into detection radar technology; replacement of aging, inefficient BDRs or B/DDR;
or support sustainment of current radars on USAF installations. The availability of funds within
each Squadron, Wing, and/or Major Command (MAJCOM) will dictate the number of radar
units acquired under the Statement of Work (SOW). The department-wide stand-up of BDR or
B/DDR technologies involves over 59 USAF locations and within 140 Air National Guard units.

This acquisition is anticipated to be accomplished via a Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA)
established by 377 Mission Support Group Services Contracting Branch (377 MSG/PKA) with
the Air Force Safety Center (AFSEC) at Kirtland AFB. Individual contracts will be established
by Ordering Activities associated with the Squadrons, Wings, and/or MAJCOM that require the
BDR or B/DDR units. Each order established off the BOA is anticipated to include the BDR or
B/DDR and basic associated services, such as site planning, delivery and installation, and a
warranty. An additional option for an extended warranty/service plan will be added.
Maintenance, data storage, and training are also required, in addition to travel to CONUS and
OCONUS locations.

Industry Day Goals

To gauge Industry interest and competition for BDR or B/DDR requirement.
To verify Industrys ability to fulfill the requirement in accordance with the draft SOW.
To better understand whether Industry possesses required DoD certifications/licenses.
Gain a better understanding of what Industry can provide.
To ensure synergy between DoD and Industry representatives
Gain a better understanding of recent Industry developments

Industry Day Purpose Summary

The purpose of this Industry Day will be to provide industry more insight into the Governments
Bird /Drone Detection Radar requirements by encouraging feedback on provided draft
documents and allowing potential vendors the opportunity to ask questions in order to both better
define this requirement and ensure it is understood. In addition, the Government seeks to better
understand the competitive environment for this requirement.

A detailed agenda will be provided prior to the virtual Industry Day. All briefings and one-on-
